Our best option going into the season, teams won't give him a nice contract, we should to be able to retain him for cheaper than most people think.

Cost isnt the issue with him. It's his brain.

If we can keep him for a good price we should.

Skill-wise, he's our best overall back. He can be dangerous. Not so for Dwyer and Redman.

Head and personality issues are there but I'd still like to see him get one more shot with us.

Maybe he needs to visit Ricky Williams tent down in Oz to find himself.

Ted Kaczynski was a killer. All Mendenhall did was not show up for a game in which he was singled out for an offense that the other four guys were just as guilty of, and he made some controversial comments that were not well-received by the largely conservative Steelers' fanbase.

His comments were purely political and have nothing to do with his performance on the field or his head. I think Tomlin unfairly singled him out and used him to make an example about the fumbling thing. I would be annoyed with my employer too, if they only punished me for something that the other guys they chose to promote over me were guilty of as well. That is called a double-standard.

I think if you really want to evaluate Mendy's head and his level of committment to the team-- you should think about the fact that he rushed back in 11 months from an injury and rehab that is normally 18 months. He is only 25 and as he started to get healthy, showed that he is still productive.

What about his fumbles in critical time of the games. What about his fumble in the super bowl against Green Bay when we had the momentum. What about his absence from the Chargers game when he didn't show. I just don't see keeping him around any longer. I think as far as a fist round pick on a running back there is none to be had.

With the change of blocking scheme from the OL, the Steelers decided to grab Bicknell with the intention of not having Mendenhall come back. A faster and speedy running back is what the steelers need.

Wow as I was driving around at work today I was thinking of possible Steelers RB's for the upcoming year.
They were talking about Danny Woodhead or possibly Bradshaw going to the Jets.
I thought, would it really be that bad to have Mendy back?
Then I said wow the Steelers attitude really changes with players like Mendy and Wallace.
I'd rather give S. Greene a shot if possible.
Could we catch lightening in a bottle again from the Jets like with Farrior?
